We have the speedy DHL Air Express service available, which will move your parcel from the UK to Burundi in just 2-4 days and can also carry very large and heavy goods as well.
In addition to this we have our own brand Air Express courier service, Parcel Monkey Air Express who deliver in 3-5 days for a much lower price than the direct DHL service. For this service the courier who collects in the UK is generally Parcelforce, they then give it to the freight forwarder who ship out to Burundi and it is delivered by DHL. You will be provided with full tracking to delivery.
We also offer the economic option delivered by Asendia, in a time frame of 6-8 days for less than £26, which of course if fully tracked.
The Republic of Burundi has had a very interesting recent past having been colonised by the Germans and Belgians and then a United Nations Trust Territory after World War II. In recent years the country has been suffered greatly, most noticeably in an economic sense, and is now considered to be one of the poorest nations on the continent of Africa.
90% of agricultural output is subsistence farming whilst the nation is almost exclusively dependent on coffee for its export revenues. Thankfully Burundi does have deposits of platinum, copper, nickel, cobalt, and uranium should it wish to exploit those resources to increase the standard of living of its inhabitants.
The landlocked nature of the country, being surrounded by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo, certainly doesn't help with exports, given that many countries on the shores of the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic are able to make use of sea shipping.
Of course, before you can send parcels, or anything else, into Burundi you will have to check for import restrictions. Part IX of this document details the rules pertaining to the importation of goods via 'registered couriers'. You can find more information at the Office Burundals des Recettes website.
We also advise to ensure your box is correctly packaged and that you check your item is not listed as prohibited on the Parcel Monkey list.
Good service, 5 days and delivered in Oz :-)
One of the boxes I sent arrived a bit torn but the content was OK and arrived on time. I would definitely use the service again.
A little confusing about what you can and cannot send abroad (as with all carriers) Delivered on time, would use again
Always good on price and find it easy to use their site.
